There is a huge misconception out there by the pro lifers. When I was young and making and hourly wage, without any insurance. I could not afford proper medical care, but I knew I needed a pap smear and screening. The precancerous spots on my cervix were found by the Dr. @ Planned Parenthood. I believe if I did not have access to low cost medical care, the cancer would have spread, and I could have died.
I remember Planned Parenthood as being a good place for information concerning all options if faced with difficult, life changing situations. It seemed as though abortion was the last resort, with all the adoption pamphlets they handed out.
While I was in the waiting room, I recall being afraid that people would think that I was there to get an abortion. I was afraid that there would be protesters yelling at me, but I was in a financial pinch, and was strong enough to go. T
What I found to be true over the years was that the Planned Parenthood doctors and staff were by far the most knowledgeable, and the nicest people. They have compassion and empathy.
Cancer touches everyone, people who are pro choice,and pro life. It was wise for the Komen foundation to reconsider their funding.
